    Advanced CranioSacral Therapy

    for trauma and injury resolution

    CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, light-touch approach that aims to activate the body's self-healing mechanism. This mesmerizing modality was developed in the 1970's by John E. Upledger, an osteopathic physician who believed the craniosacral system directs and controls all our body processes. CST helps to balance and revitalize cerebrospinal fluid which improves the functioning of the central nervous system. A healthy nervous system supports the body in healing itself from any form of stress, injury or disease.

    Reiki &

    Energy Medicine

    for integrated health & balance

Reiki is an ancient energy healing technique founded by a Japanese man named Mikao Usui in 1922. It has been known to reduce stress and promote healing on physical, emotional and spiritual levels.

  • Testimonials

    "Without sharing one detail about my history, Shanna intuitively knew the areas of my body that needed balancing, releasing, and grounding. I highly recommend Shanna as a body worker who can address all levels of healing with reverence and precision." -Jennifer Lynn, Founder of Wisdom Flow Yoga


    "Shanna has magic hands! Shortly after an acute hand injury I was lucky enough to have two sessions with her. Without working directly on my injury, Shanna was able to help shift my whole perception of the trauma and put me on the path to an amazingly rapid recovery which my 'regular' doctor described as "healing like a kid!" -Zorg, Stilt Artist and Musician


    "Shanna is an extraordinary bodyworker. When I came to see her I had been experiencing chronic head pain. After one session with Shanna my head pain completely disappeared and I felt she had accessed the root of the issue. Thanks to her deep listening of my body, I now have a more expanded sense of my own system which has been an enormous and empowering gift." -Kristen, Biologist


    "My time with Shanna has been the single most vital healing gift I have given to myself in years. It most certainly released darkness and shifted things around. Shanna is a gifted healer and I felt very safe in her caring presence. I’ve done many modalities of inner work before with breath, meditation etc. but this was unlike anything I've ever experienced. " -Joanie, Waldorf Librarian


    "Shanna is an amazing practitioner. She is gentle and caring and has a way of coaxing healing out in the least expected ways. I have had sessions with many Cranio workers and Shanna helps create the most emotional release of any I have met. I recommend her wholeheartedly." -Joe Hudson,Sustainable Business Entrepreneur


    "I'm not exactly sure what happened in our session but it was profound. I came down with a sore throat, chest cold and fever yet now my cold is almost gone and my back pain practically nonexistent. I believe Shanna helped move something around in me that had been stuck for awhile." -Ali, Dance Artist


    "Shanna's touch helps me relax instantly. Her depth of presence opens me up and I've had several breakthroughs: emotional, spiritual, and physical. She has a heart of gold and is a true healer. I highly recommend her." -Brian Edgar, DJ and Counselor


  • FAQ

    Healing is a Process. Enjoy it.

    What does a typical session look like?

    • Consultation Time-The first part of the session includes an intake and consultation which acknowledges your current state of being and helps Shanna to assess how she can best support your wellbeing
    • Table Time-As you comfortably recline face-up (typically for entire session) on a massage table, Shanna starts the session with a focused intention to to support your highest good to unfold. A CranioSacral Stillpoint Technique is offered to calm and balance the nervous system and jumpstart your self-healing mechanism. Tuning in to your body wisdom, she intuitively assesses your priority needs and implements subtle yet sometimes deep touch to release restrictions and improve wellbeing.
    • Integration & Conclusion-As your body integrates positive changes, Shanna gently guides you to return to the present setting of the room. She includes time to share about the experience, to answer questions, and to allow you to ground and hydrate before you leave.

    How can I make the most out of a session?

    • Ask for what you need ie...blanket, pillows, tissue, less or more pressure, touch or no touch in a specific area, bathroom break etc.
    • Feel free to ask questions and express what feels natural. You may wish to share memories, images, thoughts, and epiphanies. You may desire to move your body and express yourself through sound. You may experience heightened awareness or enter a meditative and dream-like state. Perhaps being silent for the session is your best medicine
    • Twitching, gurgling, burping, sneezing, coughing etc are all signs energy is moving
    • Allow yourself to observe body pleasant and unpleasant body sensations from a neutral perspective
    • Trust in your healing process
    • Avoid scheduling work or other appointments after a session. You may wish to walk and unwind before driving. You may want to go home and sleep.

    Why do I feel disoriented, sore, dizzy, tired, or extra emotional after a session?

    • Your body's healing mechanism has been activated and the therapuetic process tends to continue after a session. The healing and integration process may cause initial discomfort as the body releases physical and emotional tensions and adjusts to natural alignment
    • Our body stores the energetic impact of past traumas and injuries into its cell structures and develops compensation patterns to support itself. When negative imprints are released, you may experience pain or discomfort in other regions of the body, perhaps where pain never existed. This is because connective tissue in one region inserts an attachment to structures in different areas. Therefore, when negative traumatic imprints are released from the neck, the fascia of the sacrum may shift, and vice versa.
    • As tissues unwind and release, trapped emotions may surface and a  SomatoEmotional Release process begins.
    • If relief doesn't occur within 3 or 4 days, or if pain feels unbearable, please call for a follow up session or referral

    How many treatments will I need?

    • Every individual is unique, and the amount of sessions one needs is recommended on a case by case basis. 
    • Acute conditions of recent onset may only require one to three treatments while chronic conditions may require more treatments to achieve sustained results. 1-2 sessions per week for a recommended period of time may  allow the body to incorporate consistent and permanent changes. When  the body has acclimated to optimal alignment, monthly or bimonthly maintenance treatments may be recommended.
    • The more consistent you are, the better the likelihood of results. The effects of Shanna's sessions tend to be cumulative, meaning one ​treatment builds upon the next. It takes time for the body to replace old patterns with healthier ways of being.
    • Adjunct therapies such as acupuncture and general massage may be recommended to augment your healing process. 

    What are potential results from this therapy?

    • Where there is tension, there is a story. Often times the body retains imprints of traumatic experiences which result in pain and disease. As the root causes of suffering are explored, your body tends to liberate itself from restrictions and return to optimal health.  
    • As subconscious patterns are brought to conscious awareness, the body innately moves toward resolution and healing
    • When traumatic imprints release, the connective tissue (fascia) discovers new passageways that promote spinal alignment and enhanced wellbeing
    • You may notice increased space and ease of movement. Your aura tends to expand and you become less susceptibe to negative influence and dis-ease.
    • When you undergo any form of SomatoEmotional Release, there is an opportunity to digest suppressed emotions and to understand its teachings from a conscious perspective. Limiting beliefs dissolve as a more positive perspective is adopted.

    How can I best prepare for the session?

    • Loose, comfortable clothing is recommended. Since, with your permission, Shanna may use techniques that require her to place a hand under your sacrum, she asks that you refrain from wearing a skirt or garments with buttons or metals.
    • Please refrain from wearing perfume or cologne as Shanna is allergic
    • Inform Shanna of allergies or special needs at time of booking
    • Refrain from being under the influence of intoxicating substances
    • Drink plenty of electrolyte- enhanced water to flush out extra waste and lessen side-effects of detoxification
    • Eat at least 1-2 hours before a session so you are neither hungry nor too full
    • Consider results you aim to achieve. Clarify an intention you wish for Shanna to help you support
